...Better From Here!
This series of photographs contemplates the symbolism for phonebooks. Most of us occasionally fantasize about the notion of having another inch or two beneath us. To help us see a bit further, reach a little higher, function a bit easier. I want to stress the idea that is okay to fail and through this series of images documenting public performances, some seen and some not, I hope to portray just that. Much success can come from much failure.

A young genius once said,

"I wish I was a little bit taller,
I wish I was a baller,
I wish I had girl who looked good
I would call her
I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
And a six four Impala"

-Skee-Lo

It is amazing to imagine what could be possible with just a few more inches beneath us.
